Hello everyone, it’s Nina-Marie here with you. Welcome back to my latest, Studio Monday tutorial! I have fun playing with color, plus I adore a bit of sparkle and shine. So today I thought I would share a technique of blending two colors of Zig Markers together to create a variegated coloring; plus the addition of Pastel Metallic Accents from Prima over top of the coloring for some gorgeous shimmer!
The images and sentiments I am using in this card are brand new from Clearly Besotted. The pretty florals are from the Happy Hibiscus set (and I used the coordinating dies), and the greeting is from the Scrumptious Thank You stamp set.
For the coloring part of this technique, I used a few pink, purple and yellow Zig Markers: Dark Pink 027, Light Pink 026, Light Carmine 021, Pink 025, Purple 082, Yellow 050, Bright Yellow 052. The leaves were colored with Light Green 041 and Turquoise Green 042, and I added Light Brown 061 and Dark Brown 062 to the stems. Over all the coloring, I dabbed on Pastel Metallic Accents from Prima. Don’t you love all that shimmer???
Behind the florals, I ink blended Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade Oxide Inks; there are splatters of water and Pastel Accents to create texture. I also tucked a few Colorful Confetti sequins around the flowers and covered them with a layer of Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.
I had so much fun creating this card, and I hope you are inspired by it! Be sure to watch the video below to see how it all came together!
